small but mighty

A few weeks ago, I took a short flight to Oakland, CA to teach at Our Paper Place. Their slogan is "we're small but mighty", which is absolutely adorable and the complete truth. My hotel room was bigger than our apartment and may have even been bigger than the store. Felt lucky (and a bit spoiled) to have had the executive corner suite at the W Hotel.

The hotel was great, but more importantly, the store was just the cutest. The owners, Sarah and Gloria certainly know how to pack a lot of new and wonderful product into a small space. The back room has plenty of good light for crafting and is where they hold crops and classes.

Once again feeling blessed to have had 2 wonderful groups of talented ladies (and 1 man!) join in on the fun.
